I don’t know how old the majority of you are reading this site.Â I would think most of you are in your 20s and early 30s.Â Â At least that’s what I’m hoping.Â And hell if there are those of you that are older then great.Â Â For the younger crowd unfortunately you might not get these references but I sure as hell hope that you go out and watch these movies.
I can’t tell you how much I miss the 80s comedy.Â Â They were all dumb yet brilliant in their own rights.Â Â They were all cheesy.Â Â They all had ridiculous one liners and most of them had sexual undertones which kicked ass.Â Â They also had great characters.
And today I want to focus on villains specifically.Â Â Here are my six favorite 80s comedy villains…..
Greg Tolan – Just One of the Guys
Played by perhaps one of the best 80s villains of all time (William Zabka), Greg Tolan is the amazingly cocky, “buff” workout freak of a villain in this completely underrated 80s classic.Â Â Tolan constantly pushes around Terry and Rick and wants nothing more than to be a total pain in the ass.Â Â He’s best known for bench pressing lunch tables and giving wedgies.Â Â He also wears incredible docksider shoes with jeans.
Teddy Beckerstead – One Crazy Summer
Easily one of my favorite 80s comedy villains of all time.Â Â Teddy is heir to the Beckerstead fortune of Lobster Restaurants.Â Â He absolutely loathes the possibility of ever working a day in his life.Â His passion is his Ferrari and picking on the Stork Twins.Â Â And he treats his girlfriend Cookie like total shit.Â Â The dude is awesome.
Roy Stalin – Better off Dead
First of all, his name.Â It’s by far the best name on this entire list.Â Secondly, Stalin prides himself on being able to ski the K-12 and picking on Lane Meyer (also stealing his girlfriend in the beginning of the movie).Â Â He plays a horrible guitar and he has a couple of lame skiing cohorts to go along with him.
